Consent banner for Splunk?


At our organization we use Splunk with Apache to provide LDAP authentication using smart cards. We are required to provide a consent banner upon typing in the website to get to our Splunk environment. 

I don't have much knowledge on Apache at all, and googling doesn't have much information on setting up a banner which then redirects me to Splunk after accepting.


Looking for assistance to see if any one else has been able to successfully implement a consent banner for their Splunk environments?

@StefanieConsent or notification banners/messages range between companies, government agencies, etc.. Depending on your requirements, the Splunk Admins have access to a one-line banner, which can be made into a hyperlink. There is limited customization, but does serve most purposes.
Logged in as an Admin... go to Settings » Server settings  » Customize global banner.
From there, you can put in your message, make it a hyperlink (example "Logging in acknowledges your consent to the policies linked here."), color the background, and it will appear at the top of the Splunk log in screen.
